Use paper towel to pat steak dry before seasoning. Check if steak is done by pressing on it gently with tongs - rare steak is soft, medium is springy and well-done is firm. For ultimate tenderness, let steak rest on a plate for 5 minutes before slicing.
Pick and thinly slice the mint leaves. Drain the pickled onion. Slice the steak. Divide the oregano roasted potatoes and steak between plates. Serve with the cucumber salsa. Top with the pickled onion and garlic yoghurt. Garnish with the mint.
